Fast & Easy Dinner: Scallop and Snap Pea Stir-Fry

This scallop and snap pea stir-fry is an ideal figure-friendly dinner. Thanks to fresh lime juice, grated ginger, garlic-chili sauce, and tons of cilantro, it's super flavorful and therefore, totally filling. For a complete meal, serve this seasonal dish with a side of sautéed mushrooms. If scallops aren't your thing, consider using shrimp, tofu, or chunks of chicken instead.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound small sea scallops, side muscle removed
Coarse salt
1 small onion, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1/2 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Asian garlic-chili sauce
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves

  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion; cook, stirring, until browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add ginger, sugar snap peas, and 1/2 cup water; cook, stirring occasionally, until peas are crisp-tender and water has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Add scallops, lime juice, chili sauce, and cilantro. Toss to coat. Season with salt, as desired.
